Now on IR, meaning his 2008 season is over, the questions about the future of running back Fred Taylor will officially begin. Set to make $6 mil in 2009, Taylor may, or may not be back with the Jags in 2009, but for now, he’s stating he’d like to stay with the team he’s played with his entire career.
“I never really wanted to be away from here to begin with,” he said. “I just said I’m going to play football whether it’s here or not. … I’m not going to go, but there’s a business side of it. I don’t want to go is what I’m saying. It is my plea. I don’t want to go.”
Taylor has already said he would take a hard look at coming back at a reduced rate, but no matter what, his days of being the teams feature back appear over, as it looks as if Maurice Jones-Drew will for sure be the main ball carrier come 09.
